Jarlshof provides an insight into the way of life of the inhabitants at particularly interesting periods – the late Bronze Age, Iron Age, Pictish era, Norse era and the Middle Ages. It includes oval-shaped Bronze Age houses, Iron Age broch and wheelhouses, Viking long houses, medieval farmstead and 16th century laird’s house. The interpretation centre houses a hands-on display of local materials traditionally used on site including wool, stone, slate and bone.

Opening Times:
Visit Historic Scotland's website for details.
